Hong Kong singer Joey Yung has denied reports claiming that she is dating Alex Yeung, the younger son of Emperor Group chairman Albert Yeung. She is managed by Emperor Entertainment Group, which is home to artistes such as Nicholas Tse, Hacken Lee, Leo Ku, Twins and Hins Cheung.
All eyes have been on the 39-year-old’s love life after she split with fellow singer Wilfred Lau in January. The former couple dated for over five years, and Joey once shared that she would tie the knot with him after she turned 40.
However, there was no word of any new man in her life until this week, when Hong Kong media outlets claimed that she has been dating Alex for the past four months. They added that he is widely believed to be first in line to inherit his father’s empire, which has subsidiaries in entertainment, real estate and financial services, among others.
The reports shared that the pair was almost ready to go public with their relationship, especially since they were spotted together at G.E.M’s concert in Kaohsiung earlier this year. Joey is also said to have organised a special birthday surprise for Alex last month.
Her manager stepped forward to address the rumours with a short statement, “I’m also hoping for the rumours to be true, but they aren’t.”
Alex has been rumoured to be involved with numerous celebrities, including model Christy Lai, actress Vivien Yeo and singer Lesley Chiang, but has never gone public with any of these relationships.
